Read All Categories from Lotus Notes

is there a way to read all categories that can be assigned to appointment? There is a list with predefined categories and I can assign my own category(categorie1). All that categories can be selected from "Categories" dialog. I need this whole list in my C# project.

categories list from this dialog


  • Default categories are hard coded:

    "Holiday", "Vacation", "Projects", "Clients", "Phone Calls", "Travel"

    Add these as constants to your code.

    Get the additional custom categories with key "UserCategories" from profile document "CalendarProfile".

    Read the values with db.getProfileDocument() from mail db:

      Document doc = db.getProfileDocument("CalendarProfile", session.getUserName());
      Object userCategories = doc.getItemValue("UserCategories");
